Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Escudo Rojo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A joint effort between the Baron Philippe de Rothschild winemaking team and the best winemakers in Chile's most noted winemaking regions: the Maipo and Rapel Valleys. Escudo Rojo _[the literal translation of Rothschild - red shield_] is a masterful blend of old world grape varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chile's indigenous varietal Carmenere.

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc, with a range of varietal wines and, more recently, Domaine de Baron'arques; to California, with Opus One; and to Chile, with Almaviva. One of the key factors behind the company's undisputed success is the art of blending, which it practises with exceptional skill. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the majority shareholder of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, works closely with the executive directors to maintain, modernise and develop the family business.

This is a very well balanced, nicely blended wine. The color is dark red, with a nose of coffee, tobacco and cherry. Good balance and similar flavor upon entry with decent length. Above average quality and to be recommended.
